Kobe is in for a little battle come this November. This tumor has to go.

Main image

Family Support Youth Cancer

Kobe has a Pheochromocytomer tumor. What makes his so rare is that it should be on his Adrenal gland but Kobes found its way into his liver. After countless scans it showed that surgeons were not willing to operate as the tumor bulges out of the liver and is too close to the inferior vena cava of the heart. With that being said and after countless more tests he was put forward to have radiaton treatment in Melbourne at The Peter Mac Cancer Centre. Unfortunately after a couple rounds of radiation they found that it was no use as all it was doing was pissing the tumor off (we were hoping to shrink it so it would be easier for surgery at a later date. Soooooooo we are back to scans and have now discovered there is a tiny gap of hope between the liver and heart so surgeons are now gearing up to remove tumor in November.

We are raising funds to make life a little bit easier for myself, Kobe, his brother Kendel and his sister Kaylen. Kobe has a very smart mind and we made the choice for him to differ University this year until he is 100%. Funds will be used for his recovery downtime and preparing him for a smoother entrance into University.
